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 one day course will give you all the confidence and knowledge you will ever need to bake your own bread. Chris is a master of his trade and I would recommend a day with him at the Convent Bakery again and again. I did many more types of breads than expected and all were delicious. The simplicity of Chris' instructions is perfectly married with his enthusiasm and passion. An asset to Melbourne's world of baking. Do yourself (and your loved ones) a favour - just do it !

What a treat:) learning to make so many new delicious breads. Chris is a fantastic teacher - a master of his craft. I highly recommend this class and will definitely take the next one when it opens for enrollment. And added bonus is a tour of the grounds. Heartbreaking to see how young girls were treated but relieved and excited that these beautiful buildings are now being put to good use. Thank you Chris for a remarkable experience.
