Creative workshops

Creative workshops are also available, allowing members of the public to gain hand-on tips and techniques from the Wētā Workshop wizadry crew. Be introduced to special effects make-up and learn how to create horro-bly convincing wounds with silicon gels and makeup in their Horror FX Workshop, or create your own keepsake from genuine leather in their brand new maker's space in their Leather Workshop. Both workshops can be booked with a Unleashed guided tour on the end or seperately.

Wētā Workshop Unleashed won the international award for Storytelling in the Blooloop Innovation Awards 2021.See more here
