Adults $49, Children $39 (8+)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to design a gruesome wound, inflicted by a terrifying monster, and use prosthetic effects to apply it to your arm?

At these Horror Unleashed Creative Workshops, the Wētā Workshop Unleashed crew will teach the basic tricks of the trade to deliver realistic prosthetic effects that will make your friends and family cringe in terror, and giggle with horrified delight. The thrill of hands-on creative workshops is experiencing what it’s like to be a practical effects artist working on the movies, creating ghastly effects for a variety of scenes.

Making something scary isn’t actually scary at all. It’s highly enjoyable with smiles and laughs all around. You’ll be guided through a Workshop brief based on the faux horror movie Fauna, featured in the Wētā Workshop Unleashed experience.

Your crew member will take you through the brief, examine the movie scene to understand the prosthetic required, then dive right into the techniques needed to bring that scene to life in all its bloody glory.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
