OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Hi, I'm a WA blogger too. Would love to apply for this event, we have needed something like this for a LONG time. I went to the Craft and Quilt fairlast week just HOPING for something different... but no...

Anyway, I would love to apply but I am participating in a sale in Bunbury the weekend before so don't think I can as I don't know hoe much stock I will sell. Could you please add my blog to your list?

Odd Girl Out said...

Thanks Peta - we will add your blog!

Peta said...

Thanks so much for adding me. I am really keen to be part of whatever you have planned!

I emailed an application for the fair a few weeks ago, but have since realised I have a wedding on Sat 12 July and won't be able to attend.
Can you please cancel my application? I'm so sorry for any inconvenience.
