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!

Guest blogger #2 - Renee G.

Hello all! I'm delighted to tell you that I am your second guest blogger. The lovely Niina seems to be in one piece, so I think you guys are pretty safe? You seem to be a quiet bunch. In fact, where are you? Speak up, people! I need your help as I am not very good at introductory posts. Basically after this introductory I want you to think I am creative, kind, smart, professional and have super hero qualities. So, please feel free to add some bits in to impress you.

My name is Renee G. (not affiliated with Andrew G.) and I reside in cute little town in Western Australia where I let my imagination flow.

My inspiration is drawn from nature, culture and vintage history. I am the jewellery designer and 'maker' of the brand Cocoa Pod - Botanical Jewellery. I enjoy expressing my creativity in many genres. I am fortunate that jewellery designing is not only my occupation but also my passion!

Unfortunately due to bad health Cocoa Pod has been put on somewhat of a standstill. I was (until now) sharing my energy on both equally, which works out to be an unproductive amount for both of them. As Cocoa Pod is not like work to me (some say it's more of an obsession ;), as you can imagine, it’s really hard to have a 'break' from it. However, the plan for this month is to put most of my energy into health and share some creative inspiration with you.
