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!

Upcycle Perth are looking for stallholders for their Repurposing Exhibition and Sustainability Fair at Earthwise in Subiaco from 2pm to 9pm on 22nd - 23rd February 2013.

This event has two separate parts and you can choose to participate in either or both.
The Upcycle Exhibition: an Upcycling Exhibition where creators enter individual upcycled or repurposed pieces and judges will award prizes for the best entries.

Entries can be anything from useful household items to beautiful artworks and everyone is encouraged to have a go. Categories include:
  • Art and decor 
  • Clothing, jewellery and accessories
  • Furniture + large household items
  • Small items (eg: tabletop kitchen or office items)
  • Unrubbish

The Sustainability Fair: a market-style event where stallholders will offer a range of delights. While preference will be given to those selling upcycled products, they will also welcome:
  • other recycled and vintage items
  • handmade items
  • food and beverages
  • organisations / information related to sustainability
  • services and activities which will add to event atmosphere

Deadline for registrations is 10th February. If you'd like more information, see www.upcycleexhibition.org for event information or to express interest. You can also join their Facebook page and check out new upcycling examples daily.
