Current Projects

Kitchen – Plans are well underway 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. Two members attended a timber framing workshop in the Fall 2013, and we hope to have timber framing in progress in Spring 2015.

Governor’s Clothes – Some Members of Gardiner’s were 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. Delivered on June 2013!
