The Abbortsford Convent is an extraordinary place and is becoming an important arts, educational and cultural precinct in Melbourne. It is an invaluable resource for the arts community for training and education, an incubator for creativity and the sharing of ideas, and a place for community participation and enjoyment.

The 11 magnificent buildings and gardens are spread over 6.8 hectares in a sweeping bend in the Yarra river and are surrounded by the Collingwood Children's Farm and Yarra Bend Park.

Nestled within the walls of the Convent Annexe or Kitchen Wing are two magnificent wood fired masonry ovens built in 1901, which were once used by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd to bake all food once served at the Convent.

It is in these amazing ovens that the Convent Bakery, through the hands of its Artisan Bakers, produces a unique variety of old-fashioned wood fired bread.

23 September 2017 • Beginners Bread Making

Such a beautiful old property/bake-house steeped in history. The day was excellent from greetings at the adjoining cafe right through to taking our baked treasures home. So very well organised and Arnauld provided both group and one:one support throughout each phase. He was an extremely skilled teacher. Most ingredients were ready for each participant, which saved time and helped with the flow of instruction. I learned heaps and have the confidence to practice further.
