We Make Carpets is an art collective consisting of Stijn van der Vleuten, Marcia Nolte, and Bob Waardenburg. They make temporary structures that resemble carpets from a distance. The Patterbank team’s favourite piece is the intricate pattern form made up of pastel coloured plastic cutlery. The artists have also made carpets out of medical tape, cotton balls, balloons, screws, cocktail sticks and pasta. The carpets are temporary, made on the spot with no thought out plans or sketches beforehand. See more of these wonderful pattern pieces at
