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!

Fremantle Bazaar - call out for applicants!

Fremantle Art Centre’s annual Bazaar takes place over the first weekend of December. We pride ourselves on presenting our audience with the highest calibre of West Australian designed wares, from crafts and homewares to fashion, textiles, jewellery and beyond.
In 2010 we introduce a new format for Bazaar, where the Friday night market is open to the public. This enables us to trade at full capacity from 5pm–9pm Friday night, alongside the 9am–5pm hours on Saturday and Sunday.
Please take note of some important points before proceeding with the registration of interest form.
Applications are collected until close of business, Friday 6 August.
Applications must be accompanied by examples of your work and some written material about your business, and what you create. Hard copies mailed or delivered to FAC are preferable, but high-quality colour photographs are also accepted via e-mail.
The quality of the examples you send will have a direct bearing on the outcome of your application. Any information you can provide about why you’re a great fit for Bazaar will help inform the judges’ decision.
A team of experienced judges from Fremantle Arts Centre will select the stallholders for Bazaar 10. The judges’ decision is final.
Only stallholders with exclusively WA designed material can be selected. Proof that your work bears a strong connection to WA will be required if requested. FAC reserves the right to reject applications on the basis of this criterion.
Fremantle Arts Centre takes a 25% + GST commission on all sales. There is strict protocol for making sales – all transactions occur at the sales tent, never at the stall.
Signage is supplied by Fremantle Arts Centre unless by special arrangement.
Bazaar is a cornerstone of Fremantle Arts Centre’s annual program. It is a highlight of the WA events calendar, and attracts eager shoppers from all corners of the state. Please join us in making this year’s Bazaar yet another fine showcase of the state’s best wares in our most exciting Christmas market yet.
