Willow Catalan Platter
(one day course)
With Vivienne Turner

Course Dates:
Sunday 3rd May 2015

Time: 10am to 4pm

Price: £60 per person

Cheese plates, fruit platters and decorations, are some of the many uses of a traditional Catalan platter. Originating from an area of Spain where much fruit is grown a technique handed down through generations. These baskets are simple yet effective.

Over the course of the workshop you will be given tuition on techniques and guidance with basket making tools.

Learn the strengths and weaknesses of the material and get an insight into the cultivating methods used, to produce the different coloured varieties, which will be available on the day.

Complete beginners or those with some experience will find this a relaxing and achievable experience. Create a colourful tension tray, or Catalan platter as they are sometimes known. The technique involves a simple three step weave over a circlular wreath frame and derives from the base of a Catalan basket. We will be using a selection of coloured willow, but cuttings can be taken from the hedgerow during the winter months
