We construct examples of non-semisimple tensor categories using planar algebras, with our main focus being on a construction from the restricted quantum group Ūq(sl_2). We describe the generators and prove a number of relations for the Ūq(sl_2) planar algebra, as well as describing diagrammatically various homomorphisms between modules, and conjecture a formula for projections onto indecomposable modules.
