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.

This class was fantastic. Not only did we walk away with a tonne of delicious food but the instructor was fantastic. This is a pretty basic class but I still learnt a lot, the class size also means you get one on one time and help from the baker. Really enjoyed and would recommend to anyone who enjoys baking!

Excellent class. Please take it if you are a first-time baker like myself! The class is very engaging, the chef is very approachable, plus you get tons of stuff to bring back so don't forget to bring an extra tote ;)

I really enjoyed the breadmaking class held at Convent Bakery. The group of 7 were delightful and our teacher was fabulous. He took care to explain every step of the way and made sure that each one of us produced bread that was well worth eating. Thankyou Convent - love the venue and the amazing old wood-fired oven.
