    You have to be prepared to re-stretch screens every now and again, depending on how often they're used. The 'silk' is very expensive - but I always go for one of the heavy quality man-made meshes from Specialist Crafts as they seems to last longer. Their technical department are very helpful if you need advice.

    I was in a school a few years back which made their own. They got the D&T department to knock up some frames and the material was bought from a fabric shop I think. Worked out to be massively cheaper.
