Today we have Joost Langeveld in our program, he used to be Origami king, but now he calls himself
Origami "Master". This title is earned when you are extremely good in something and Joost really is.
In his You-Tube videos Joost shows how to fold beautiful origami models. His videos have many viewers
all over the world. Joost says: "The fun about Origami is that you only need one piece of paper" .
Today the Origami Master teaches us how to fold "Fish and Chips" of his self made papers.

I really don't have time to help everybody, because
I spend a lot of time expanding my website, making
new videos for the internet and designing models
for new origami-books.

I earn a nice amount of money with my videos on
You Tube, they are really popular.

A large newspaper magazine in my country even
interviewed me at home because of my You Tube succes:

Joost Langeveld origami master from the Netherlands
When I was about 26 years old I started doing origami. The nice thing about origami is that you
need very little stuff to create something. You only need a piece of paper to create something
nice. No matter where you are, just grab a piece of paper and you can start making things.

Origami is more for me then just designing models and showing them to other people.
I also like to make animations with my models and the last few years I also make
online computer games with my own models as sprites.

Media, advertising- and art-companies in my country have found my site too now.
I have been asked to design models for posters, helping to fill shopping-windows,
help to make pictures of interiors (with my flowers), help to make an intro for a popular
educational childrens-programm on tv, design models for a fashion show etc. etc.

I like being creative and making things with my
I have made many cartoons for fun when I was
on elementary school. When I was on secondary
school I made simple computer games and
Until I was about 14 I made many things of
technic lego like a small pinball machine or
a joystick.
Later, around my 21th I started making things
of wood like a pool-biljart table and a few
clocks. I even tried to make a wooden racing
wheel once (it worked for 5 minutes)

article about Joost Langeveld origami master

(With video instructions) A real cool supporter sombrero. In your newspaper, to fold it yourself. Forget all other supporter items. Sunday we will all have a sombrero on our head. 

Origami artist Joost Langeveld (39) designed the supporter sombrero. He has a part time software automation job and spends most of his time doing the ancient art of Origami.

Joost is pretty unknown in the Netherlands, but much more popular in other countries. Mainly because of his many beautiful flower designs. He made 8 books until now. His site has more then 800 viewers a day and his You Tube videos have really many viewers all around the world.


,,Ten years ago I made an important decision’’, says Joost. ,,I wanted to be very good at an art or craft. I have been thinking about woodcraft, but decided that Origami was more fun for me. One of my first designs was a giraffe. It only had three legs. Nowadays I can design one with the full four legs"
