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!

Side Project zine launch

Side Project is a new Perth-based quarterly zine about making things, living a creative life and fitting it in around all that other stuff by three ladies who all love craft, design and art. They share a passion for creativity and have put this magazine together over lots of meetings with cake and cups of tea.
If you’ve ever admired another person’s creative skills but felt lost as to how to get there yourself, Side Project is here to help. The zine and blog are brimming with craft projects, tutorials, inspiration and creative advice for the time-poor dabbler to the seasoned artisan.
No matter what your profession or daily routine, carving out time to create something beautiful for yourself is an important part of a balanced life. Take a break, have a cup of tea, flip through the zine and be inspired to start your own side project.

Join the Side Project team for the launch at 6-8pm, Friday 21st November at
Beau Est Mien (458 William St, Northbridge).
