"The hands are the instruments of a mans intelligence" Maria Montessori
Before the crochet, Benny Rens was just me and my sewing machine making my friends little makes, bags etc, mostly for pocket money. When I was pregnant with my second baby I learnt to crochet, and thus Benny Rens evolved into what it is today.
The beauty of crochet is balance. The use of the two sides of the brain, the maths and the art.
My work is constantly evolving, I find new ways to work to create the outcomes I strive to achieve.

I have been teaching for over 5 years, I teach an all manor of textile/art sessions and I hold a BA hons in Fine Art and Im currently working towards my Diploma in Education and Training. I think its so important to learn these skills to keep traditional crafts alive, modern and up to date.
