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!

Books From Your Backyard

Come and listen to your favourite children’s book authors and illustrators read, perform and create drawings before your eyes! 

Twelve different creators from SCBWI Australia West (the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) will present at this family fun day in 30 minute timeslots. Listen to one or stay for all twelve! You will be amazed by the local talent that we have in Western Australia. 

Books will be for sale in the State Library Shop and all sessions will be followed by book signings at the signing table. There will also be an activity table where children not attending sessions can participate in a range of book-themed craft activities under parental supervision.

All sessions are free! See the website for session details.

: Sat 10th Jan,
