Event Project Registration

We are pleased to offer some optional hands-on projects. As space is limited and pre-registration for the projects is required, be sure to reserve your spot soon! (see registration information below)! Each participant must be 8 years or older or be accompanied by an adult. The projects start on time with instructions given at the beginning of the session. Because of this and the fact that the projects take a certain amount of time to complete, your punctuality is necessary

Brown Bess Musket – $20

Project time starts at 9:30AM and 1:30PM on both days of the event.

Do you have a child that wants to feel like a real Colonial soldier or a Longhunter? The Brown Bess musket is made from rough stock. Finishing includes rasping, filing, and sanding, as well as attaching the trigger plate and guard, frizen, etc. After they are done they can head out to be mustered by either the British or Colonial army.

Paper Fans – $12

Project time starts at 9:30AM and 1:30PM on both days of the event.

No young lady’s outfit is complete without a fan. Come and design and paint your own fan, and learn about fan etiquette and the secret fan code.

For example:

“Come talk to me” Carry fan in left hand

“I wish to speak to you” Touch tip of fan with finger

“Follow me” Carry fan in right hand in front of face

“We are being watched” Twirl fan in left hand
