Craft group opens its doors

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 com­mu­ni­ty­based 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 Ty­ack­Rous­set said the busiest days were Tues­days, Wed­nes­days and Satur­days.
