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.

17 February 2020 • Beginners Bread Making

I had been attempting to make bread for years and just couldn't get it right. My husband came across this online so I booked us both in. We absolutely loved it! Really good instruction and hands-on experience. We got to enjoy our very own freshly baked scones and pizza, and then take a mountain of bread home to share with friends. I'd highly recommend this if you've been wanting to make your own bread from scratch and want some hands-on direction.

The class was excellent. Chris really knew his stuff and made the whole process very enjoyable. We learnt how to hand-mix sourdough, scone dough and pizza dough and ended up with plenty to eat on the day and to take home. It was also great to get a tour of the convent while we waited for the bread to bake.

An absolutely terrific class. Chris is really knowledgeable and friendly, he makes the day easy and enjoyable. We made scones, calzones, a white loaf and a sourdough loaf. We ended up with so much bread to take home and everything was delicious.
