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!

Made on the Left Christmas drinks

As you may know, Made on the Left has struggled to find a permanent home since the function room at the Hyde Park hotel was turned into a liquor store ;-( 140william was a fantastic location for our winter market but unfortunately it’s not available for our Xmas market like we had hoped.
However, we will be having a Xmas catch up with all you lovely people and we are on the search for a permanent new venue. 
We are also looking for new volunteers, especially in the areas of finance, blogging, marketing, sponsorship, PR or grant writing so if this interests you, we would love to meet you!
The MOTL Xmas drinks will be at the revamped Hyde Park Hotel, from 6pm Friday, 2nd December - it would be great if you can make it to share ideas, catch up with other crafters and have some great food and wine.
