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!

East Fremantle Festival

The East Fremantle Festival is on again this year on Sunday, 6 December from 1:00pm until 7:00pm. George Street will come alive with an artisan market of handmade products, three stages of non-stop entertainment, free rides and amusements for the kids and much more!

The artisan market, the main feature of the festival, is a maker’s market, where all stall holders are required to have had substantial involvement in the design and production of the arts, crafts, body products and local produce. Your stall products must be handmade by you - the artisan.

Market Criteria: This is not a market for imported goods (even if you designed them), bric-a-brac, 2nd hand goods etc. Local people hand making their products cannot compete with the prices of imported goods, so if you have some imported goods in your range you will not be allowed to sell them at this market. You can be refused entry to the market on the day or asked to leave if you are selling imported goods at the festival. If you are unsure about whether your goods fulfil this handmade criteria, please call me direct to discuss it. Sorry to ‘harp on’ about it, but it is really important that all goods are handmade by you and not imported, to keep my intention of the original artisan market (launched at the 2007 festival).

Please note, I do have to limit the amount of jewellery stalls and other product lines, otherwise it affects the uniqueness and range of products in the artisan market.

Market details are as follows:

Date: Sunday 6 December 2009
Time: 1:00pm – 7:00pm
Venue: George Street, East Fremantle
Stall cost: $55. No commission payable.
Insurance fee: $27.50 (if you don’t have your own public liability insurance, this fee is payable)
Standard stall space: 3mx3m
Stall equipment: stall holders to provide their own shade shelter and to be responsible for securing it to the hard road surface (sand bags etc)
Table hire: you can hire a table through me for $16.50 per 1.8m table (or supply your own)

I will need your expression of interest by next Friday October 9 to guarantee you a place in the artisan market.

If you would like to take part, simply email Cynthia Williamson Cynthia@ccequipment.com.au or call and ask for the artisan market info and application form.

If you have any questions about the festival, especially the artisan market, please call me on 0415 649 265.

Warm regards,
