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!

The Time is Almost Upon Us!

Are you excited? I mean , it's less than a week to go! All the designers I've had a chat to are toiling away, getting stressed about their stock levels, wondering if they're going to make sales and generally getting excited about seeing each other and all of you lovely customers on the day....

...Yes, I am talking about the July installment of Made On The Left market! Being held in the warm and cosy (which if next weekend is anything like this one, we'll all be grateful for) Hyde Park Hotel all weekend long, with a new mix of artists each day! We've had some lovely press (due to lots of behind-the-scenes work!) from the local papers and bloggers, hopefully ensuring a great turnout on both days, so make sure you come along and enjoy all the handmade goodness on offer. If you'd like, you can take a look at the photos of some of our past markets in our Flickr pool...

See you There!
