Weta Workshop Tour

The Weta Workshop Experience takes place at a dedicated off-premises group tour space where an experienced Weta Workshop crew member will take us on a guided journey through the practical effects crafted for The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, The Chronicles of Narnia, Avatar and much more! Afterwards we'll join one of the events technicians for a private SFX Makeup workshop. The crew have been slipping and sliding on faux blood and loose limbs since the days of Braindead (1992). Learn the art of crafting convincing special effects by mixing blood and sculpting your own scars and scrapes. No experience or tools necessary. Just bring yourself and your enthusiasm!
