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.

Really fantastic day of baking with Chris at the convent, had a great time and really enjoying trying to eat all the baked goods before they go stale at home :)


10 April 2019 • Artisan Bread Making

The artisan bread making coarse was very good . Chris the head baker gave a lot of usefull tips which will come in useful when I bake at home. plenty of bread to bring home ,you will definitely need a large bag. Class size was just enough at 8. My only suggestion is , if you can give hand out sheets with the details of the fruit scroll topping and calzone filling.
