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!

Learning new skills...

The bails on my pendants have previously been made using a simple craft wire but I decided that I wanted to do them in sterling silver so I took a few classes and became completely hooked on Metalsmithing, particularly working with Sterling Silver.

I can highly recommend the classes offered at the Fremantle Art Centre. They have weekend, weekdays and evening classes so you are sure to find something to suit.

Thank you to everybody who signed up for my resin classes at the recently MOTL market. I am making progress on finding a venue and really looking forward to sharing with you all the wonderful sticky and stinky world of resin jewellery. If you would like to sign up please visit the Planet Lime website and sign up for the newsletter.
