Catalan platters, also known as tension trays, are surprisingly easy to make. You will use a selection of willow varieties to add natural colour and interest to your platters.

These evening workshops at the lovely Mrs Potts’ Place are run jointly with my basketmaking pal, Kathy. The workshops are two-and-a-half hours and this is just long enough to complete the individual projects we have chosen. Group sizes are up to 12, but with two tutors everyone gets plenty of help and assistance. PLEASE BOOK DIRECTLY WITH MRS POTTS’ PLACE either using the BUY NOW link below or by phone 01276 942016 / online www.mrspottsplace.co.uk/shop.
This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, but please bear in mind that a certain amount of manual strength and dexterity is required when working with willow. The projects have been selected for their relative simplicity and suitability for beginners. Throughout the workshop students may need to use specialist basketry tools (provided), many of which are either sharp or pointed, so a sensible approach to personal safety is essential!
A work apron is recommended.
