Weta workshop

Step into a fantastical film effects workshop and explore the worlds of horror, sci-fi and fantasy in-the-making at Weta Workshop Unleashed. 

Weta Workshop Unleashed

A fantastic film fx experience opening in December 2020

Step into a fantastical film effects workshop and explore the worlds of horror, sci-fi and fantasy in-the-making. It’s a journey through Weta Workshop’s creative process that needs to be seen to be believed.

Creative workshops

Starting from January 25 2021, creative workshops will also be available, allowing members of the public to gain hand-on tips and techniques from the Weta Workshop 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.

The 90-minute guided experience includes:

  • Monsters, giants & robots – oh my!
  • Interactive gizmos
  • Discombobulating displays
  • Fantastical set-pieces from the worlds of horror, fantasy & sci-fi
  • Eye-popping practical effects: discover how the crew design, build and bring them to life

Return to reality, if you must, brimming with creative inspiration. Collectables, keepsakes and tools for your own craft can be picked up in the Weta Cave retail store.
