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!

Meeting and Making

Last night another fantastic Made on the Left meetup took place at the Balmoral (I have no idea how to spell that, forgive me!) Hotel in East Victoria Park. Etsy sent us a box of goodies to help charity by whipping up some pillowcases which we did with gusto and also frustration as the only sewing machines we had were really really old and not so very cooperative! We had some really tasty nibblies and gossiped as we created. There wasn't as big a turn out as the last meetup but the fewer numbers meant that it felt real cosy. Here are some photos I snapped during the night and I hope to see you at the next Made on the Left meetup which I believe will be down in Dwellingup.
