Current Projects

Governor’s New Clothes – Some Members of Gardiner’s have been commissioned by the Jamestown Yorktown Foundation to create two new suits of clothes for the new Governor’s Row house in the Fort at Jamestown Settlement.

Fort – Members of Gardiner’s Company have erected an earthen fort on Bob’s property in Arvonia, VA for use in skirmishing.

Gun carriage – Nature felled a large white Ash tree, and our stalwart members, Harv & Bob have set to work harvesting wood from the huge stump.

Tavern – Another space has been cleared in Arvonia to serve as the setting for our future Tavern. Anticipated to be a two story timber framed building with some modern amenities, it will ultimately be an excellent venue for our events.

Kitchen – In the meantime, plans are afoot to build a Kitchen down at the Tavern site. A separate kitchen is not only the period option, but will be a simpler single story timber framed building, and something to test out the techniques of the period on a smaller scale. There are plans for those interested members to attend a timber framing workshop in the Fall 2013.
