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 was an informative, well paced class fully loaded with information and a load of take home baked goods. If you love bread this is a great way to learn how to make your own. Highly recommended.

Wonderful day learning how to make ciabatta, turkish bread, calzone and fruit scrolls. There is always something to learn no matter your experience. Chris is an awesome teacher and expert baker who instructs the class in a down to earth, relaxed environment. Loved every minute and brought home lots of delicious bread. Highly recommend!!
