About
My name is Irene Kelly. My formal training includes basket making and horticultural skills, but my interest in crafts and gardening goes back to my childhood. I grew up in a household where making and creating were part of everyday life. This experience greatly enriched my life and so I enjoy the sharing and passing on of the knowledge and skills I have acquired over the years. Here at Green Road Gardens we offer a variety of classes including: basket making; gardening; crafts; stone carving; building living willow structures; vegetable and herb growing; preserving; and many more. Here our tutoring style involves lots of practical and hands on training in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Bespoke classes also available for groups on request.

Seed Saving Class

Irene is a fountain of knowledge, her classes are a joy to attend. She makes you feel at home while at the same time imparting her vast knowledge on a wide range of subjects.

Her home is a beautiful place, serene and calm, a botanical paradise. If you get a chance to attend a class here, jump at it. A great experience.

Foraged basket class
Oct 2019 • Friends
Having attended this class last year and loving it, had a good idea of what to expect, but this one turned out to be so good, am already looking forward to booking a place in 2020. So much to learn and never enough time, as Irene is a natural teacher, patient and encouraging and has such a wealth of knowledge. So generous too, which we soon discovered when presented with her perfect home cooking. Make sure to explore her beautiful garden as you'll see hints of some of the other classes she gives. Bring a friend, they'll thank you.

The Foraged Basket
Oct 2019
Just spent 2 fantastic days in Green Road Gardens with Irene at the foraged basket course. Irene is a brilliant teacher! Lots of individual attention, patient and generous with her knowledge all the while being so welcoming and kind. The food provided was beautiful and all homemade. We learned a variety of basket making techniques all with materials sourced from Irene’s gorgeous garden. Couldn’t recommend this course enough! Can’t wait to go back again for a third time.

Growing Your Own Veg 8 week course
Jun 2019
This course was the best learning experience I have undertaken in many years. Irene’s knowledge of horticulture is vast, so the range of new information and tips passed onto the group was wide and varied. I have recommended Irene’s one day and longer courses to numerous friends and I will certainly participate again in the future.

Bread Making Workshop
Aug 2019 • Solo
The full day breadmaking course with Irene was terrific. The course is limited to approximately eight people, and it is very hands on which makes learning the art of breadmaking even more enjoyable. She took the fear and mystery out of making yeast bread and made you believe you could do it at home. Irene is an excellent teacher. We not only learned about yeast bread but were given tips and tricks on sauces, salads, & much more. The day was most enjoyable with a good group of people and Irene’s beautiful garden was an attraction in itself. I would highly recommend this course for anyone. Faye
