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!

Want to be a part of an international exhibition? If you are aged between 5 - 26 you can create a postcard to send to the UK for the Handmade Postcard Swap!
The Handmade Postcard Swap is in its second year and is being organised by Schoolswaps. This year’s exhibition theme is ‘Let me introduce myself’.
To participate all you have to do is create a postcard (should be 15cm x 13cm in size) using any materials you like (paints, fabrics, inks). Just make sure that it represents you!
