Description

The warm complex aroma of a freshly baked load of bread can be an utterly tantalizing experience. Bread making and baking in general should be simple - and most importantly, fun.

Our bread making workshops will encourage you to have fun at home experimenting with bread. We'll talk you through the bread baking process, explaining each step along the way. You will be able to replicate this at home for the enjoyment of friends and family.

Workshops include:

  • Welcome cup of Fairtrade organic coffee or tea
  • Convent Bakery embroidered apron made from 100% Fairtrade cotton
  • Woodfired scones for morning tea, which you make, eat and take home
  • Lunchtime walk around historic Convent buildings, grounds and artist studios
  • Pizza for lunch, which you make, eat and take home
  • All recipes and baking methods
  • 1 kilo of organic flour to take home
  • Basic authentic sourdough bread techniques, which you will use on the day to mix and bake your own bread and rolls to take home

All workshops are hosted by one of our fully qualified bakers or pastry chefs.

Private bookings are available with a minimum of 8 people any day of the week.

Convent Bakery

Vendor since 2012

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 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.
