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.

11 July 2018 • Beginners Bread Making

The day was filled with fun whilst learning all there is to know about bread and scone making, especially the little things that make all the difference. Our teacher Chris was absolutely wonderful. He was good fun whilst making sure we were all keeping up with the steps as the day progressed. The convent location was perfect with the wonderful wood fired oven. Thank You for the opportunity to attend. Mattea

What a fantastic day. Arnaud Fisser was an excellent teacher in a wonderful location at the Abbotsford Convent Bakery. The 100 year old wood fired oven was perfect for baking bread and adding atmosphere. Arnaud carefully and patiently taught how to make scones, dinner rolls, sour dough, how to mould loaves, pizza and how to make our own sour dough culture. He demonstrated and then individually helped each participant with technique. This all resulted in lots of goodies to take home and great pizza and coffee for lunch. I recommend the beginners course for those who would like freshly baked dlelights home baked, and also if you just want a fun and tasty day out. The bakery also has wonderful food and is a great place to have a late breakfast or lunch.
