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.

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

Hey to all you lovely people, lovely to chat isn't it?
However, it doesn't really cut it when compared to a real, one-on-one, in the flesh talkathon does it?
Well you're in luck. Turns out Etsy is helping us organise our second meet for the public (before it was kinda just Etsy sellers that hung out on a particular forum).
And as usual for Made on the Left, its in a pub! Hoorah! Big thank you to the Balmoral for their lovely support, we couldn't do it without you.
So without further ado, here is the link to register your interest. It's crucial you respond if you're thinking of coming along, as it gives us an idea of numbers.
And yes, you can make a pillowcase for charity if you want, but we will be having something else to do (many things). Including making bunting for future MOTL markets like the ones pictured, I LOVE it so much, but we need more, more MORE!
Hope to see you there you creative things you. xx
