I posted this in the slik screen forum but I thought more people might check here...

My boyfriend and I were at one of those huge Tesco Extra over the Easter weekend and we saw in the kid's arts & crafts aisle a screen printing kit for 7 and picked it up to try out. I do loads of sewing, but I've never tried screenprinting before since the amount of startup materials always seemed so intimidating.

The kit looks pretty good for the money, with a reusable plastic ~6x8 inch frame and locked-in roller system and a cover to keep the mess inside, two mesh polyester screens, two pots of glue (for blocking out the negative), 3 colours of fabric paint, a black marker and a bunch of gross paper stencils we'll throw away. So it looks like we'll only need to replace the mesh screens and the glue/paints as we use through them, fingers crossed. I've looked on tesco.com but I can't find it listed on there so I took a photo of the kit if anyone's interested...





I'll let you know how it goes once I've tried it! I'm not hoping for professional grade quality for something so cheap, but I'm hoping it'll do the job, anyway... Smiley

Grin I looked at these too! I didn't have the cash for it at the time though, but I'll certainly be getting one I think! Has anyone tried it yet?  Grin

Seriously, me too! They also had a "learn to crochet" kit and a bunch of drawing kits that I would've loved when I was a kid, and two different sewing machines prominantly displayed in the homewares section. I felt so proud!

Now if only they started to sell fabric... bwahahah!
