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

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

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.

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"
