RE screenprinting

ACE are planning to set up public screenprinting facilities. I'm finding out what gear they need. Might be an option to let them have our stuff as they seem to have the space available. We are struggling for space. Could be a good option for all. Obviously we would still be able to use the facilities.

it would be really cool to develop printmaking rather then just screenprinting in future too
