About me

Magdi Dózsa

I live and work in Szeged, Hungary. I had studied civil engineering, however, I worked as an accountant until 2016. In the meantime, I knitted, sewed and made leather accessories. I acquired a couple of felting techniques and presently I consider myself as a nuno­felt artisan.

I think the path I followed was quite unusual. I didn't begin by attending felting courses at school or by artisan masters. I took the very first steps via the help of the Internet. Of course, it is not possible to create artistic products without the help of contemporary masters. I attended several courses offered by Márti Csille, Judit Pócs, Ákos Aba Perényi and Erzsó Szabó.  As to the present: I keep on experimenting, practising and learning.
The fusion of silk and felt allows an endless variety of forms and combinations. A felt item is always unique. Several aspects play a key role in determining what kind of scarf or bag is going to be born, such as the duration of the process or the thickness of the wool. No two products are alike. However, the temptation of adding a bit of extra silk thread or viscose in order to create something new is always present.
Besides wool and silk ​​I try to use as many different fabrics as possible such as acrylic, spangle fabrics, metal organza, cashmere and patterned viscose. Márti Csille suggested me that I should create each piece as if it were for myself, which I took to heart. Upon request I can make your personal wish come true as well, however, the very final touch comes from my inner world.

Information

Felt and nuno­felt withstand abuse by nature. Thus, cleaning is not necessary unless the product gets dirty. Unpleasant odours can be eliminated by ventilation. In case we would like to wash it, it should be done by hand in lukewarm mild soapy water.

Soak the felt in the water, and let it stay there for a while. The least we move and rub it, the lower the chances that the fabric’s becoming thick. After 30 to 60 minutes, while still in the water gently press it with your palm. Avoid wringing and rubbing. Then, take it out of the water and gently squeeze the remaining water out of the fabric. Finally, lay it on a towel and let it dry.

If the felt item is a bag, hat or something else with a particular shape, pad it with, for instance, a towel in order to keep the form.

Clothes moths are the greatest enemies of wool products. The best practice is to wear our scarf, hat or bag. Of course, it doesn’t mean that we should also wear them during summer: we can store our felt item in a plastic bag and turn it occasionally for ventilation.
