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!

Ever wondered what happens to the things you throw out in your rubbish?
An exhibition by emerging WA designer Holly Pepper is about creating new beginnings for the discarded by-products of our lavish western lifestyles. On her return from a year volunteering in Samoa, Holly was struck by the materialistic WA lifestyle and was determined to show people how useful the objects we discard can be.
Holly invites you to come and view the results at her maiden solo exhibition at the Free Range Gallery from November 18 to 23.
The exhibition will showcase a range of original and thought-provoking textile sculptural works. Most of the pieces have been inspired by the re-use of locally sourced industrial waste, to create bold tactile designs.
Holly would like to thank local not-for-profit REMIDA for its work recycling useable waste products, which has been of great value to her. She also spends countless hours scavenging among council roadside collections, op-shops, tip shops and friend’s chuck-out piles.
Media and public are welcome to attend the exhibition opening from 6pm on November 18.
Tread lightly community forum
Sunday November 21
An open forum discussion will be hosted within the gallery space to discuss sustainability and design. This is a good opportunity to talk more in depth with Holly and other local artists about sustainable art.
