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!

Sunday, June 14

well, how do you do?

Hooray, a new guest blogger to keep you all entertained for the next two weeks. My name is Lauren, a few of you may know my label Osier from the past few Made On The Left markets, but here is a bit more about me, I'm sure we'll get along swimmingly, especially if you talk back, commenting is easy!

This is me.
I do wear glasses, but not as big as this.
This is
just me being silly.

I study Architecture at the
University of Western Australia.

1.5 years down, 3.5 to go.

I also teach swimming.
To adults,
kiddies and little babies.
So much fun :)

Live music is one of my
greatest joys
apart from making things.
Little Red from Melbou
are one of my faves.

I also collect cacti and succulents,
and plant them up in vintage teacups,
and sell some in my vintage stores :
www.acornsvintage.etsy.com and
I've been collecting since I was about 7.

And last, but definitly not least,
is tea and coffee. At least 3 cups of each a day,
especially in these below zero nights
I've been having where I live. Brrr.

And that is me in a nutshell. I'll see you on Wednesday folks for a look at some hot trends in handmade!

I love your potted teacups. I am a teapot collector and have some cacti and herbs potted up in some of those.
