Since 2011, something new has been cooking in the old Cracker Factory at 819 Washington Street in Port Townsend.  After four years of renovation, Phyllis Day and spouse Richard Grandy have been welcoming visitors to workshops, classes and events to share in the fun of the beautifully converted historic space, celebrating community and art.

Built in 1888, the three story brick building was originally a bakery where Port Townsend's first mayor made crackers and biscuits for ships visiting the port.  The second or main level now boasts a state of the art kitchen, which opens into a large and beautiful workspace which can accommodate large groups or individual instruction, plus gourmet and fine cuisine.

The ground floor opens to the courtyard through two carriage doors for plein aire classes, receptions, jazz concerts, art exhibits and other events. The third story provides more studio space and living quarters to accommodate overnight stays for visiting instructors.

If you have a workshop or class you would like to organize or teach, or an event you would like to hold in a bright, spacious and inspiring atmosphere, please contact us.
