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.

Made on the Left's annual Christmas Market extravaganza comes to Perth Cultural Centre, Northbridge on the weekend of 9 & 10 December 2017.
Entry is FREE and over two fun-filled days, you and your family can enjoy a smorgasbord of over 60 amazing Western Australian designers, plus a fabulous line-up of entertainment and creative workshops for kids!
Now in its ninth year, Made on the Left creates events and activities to promote independent art, design and fashion from all around Western Australia.
The upcoming Christmas market will feature a huge variety of one-of-a-kind gifts for men, women and children. All the showcased products are either handmade by the designer or fully produced in WA and many items will not be available elsewhere.
As you leisurely peruse the stalls and meet the friendly artists and artisans, you will be entertained by the "Funk on Junk" sounds of Perth band Junkadelic. Junkadelic combine a smoking hot brass section with hard-hitting recycled percussion to bring you a face-melting blend of New Orleans inspired street rhythms.
Children meanwhile, can immerse themselves in the Creative Kids Workshops running throughout the day.

Congratulations to Harriet Perryer for winning best stall at the 2017 KickstART Markets presented by Propel YouthArts! Her stall, sca.har. was judged the best from around 60 stalls on the day. Sca.har.’s range includes wrapping paper, jewellery, cards and paper goods using her artwork which is inspired by Australian native flora. Harriet even made the display items herself (with some help from her dad). The simple yet effective branding, combined with the cohesive display and range of products, impressed the judges. Well done Harriet and we look forward to seeing you at the next Made on the Left market!
