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.

The class was extremely well run with the instructor sharing his wealth of knowledge. Lots of time to practice and ask questions and lots of feedback along the way. A lovely venue and cooking in a piece of history with with the old wood stove.

Such a great way to spend a day! I love a day of learning, eating, and cooking and there was so much food to take home! Chris was wonderful, great sense of humour, super patient, especially with dad who was totally out of his comfort zone. Great place, nice balance of cooking and breaks to eat or tour the grounds. I would totally recommend this, and hope to do the artisan class with the family at some point too!

Excellent Workshop. I enjoyed the day very much. The venue is just so beautiful and the instructor Chris Topliss was so knowledgable, patient and helpful. I highly recommend it even if you've never baked before.
