Screen-printing is the sort of hobby that can easily be developed into a business, as there will always be a market for exclusive stuff. And besides selling the fabric, there is also the potential for designing and making up items such as Banners, Cards, Posters, Key Chains clothing, bed linen, table linen, and soft furnishings etc. Apart from the opportunity to make money while still being at home, working with innovative styles and ideas with colours and fabric is so fascinating and satisfying, scanning through magazines and books for new ideas, or devising new ways of overcoming design or printing problems. The creative challenge of screen-printing seems never-ending, a vocational knowledge gained in just 10 weeks can pay dividends and go a long way to satisfy the inner creative urge and at the same time earn pocket money from the home craft which can be turned into a small scale industry.
