FOR the past 16 years, an old Como dairy has been a haven for Perth mosaic artists.

With a membership of 26 people from Clarkson to Mandurah, the Mosaics @ the Cowshed group is on the lookout for people interested in learning to mosaic or who want to have a dedicated space to practise their craft.

The community-based co-operative is part of the South Perth Arts and Crafts Society, which is hosting an open day on August 21 from 10am to 4pm where works will be available for sale.

One-day beginner classes are offered periodically, according to demand, for $150 including materials.

Group members have access to the venue 24/7 and member Brigitte Tyack-Rousset said the busiest days were Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
