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.

I highly recommend this baking class! It's highly informative and entertaining, my partner and I had a great time. The teacher is great, and you go back home with a box full of bread, pizza, scones, etc. Also, it's set in the beautiful Abbotsford Convent. It's definitely a great way to spend your Sunday!

Had a great day learning the basics of bread making. Chris is an excellent teacher and I learnt so much with his instructions on how to handle the dough through each step from mixing, kneading and proofing. I really got to understand the process, through touch and sight, guided by Chris's instructions and experience. I have to say the scones were the best I have ever had and are now my new recipe :). Baking our breads in the scotch oven is such a great experience and the crust and flavour of our breads is delicious. Gemma

I attended this class with my partner as a birthday gift for him. Our baking instructor, Chris, was the perfect level of helpful and humorous. We learnt valuable techniques for baking bread, scones and pizza. We were sent home with so much left over bread from our session, it has all been delicious. We would never have thought we could bake like this, thank you to Chris for sharing your knowledge!
