Wētā Workshop is world-famous, but in Wellington, you can have your own hands-on experience of cinematic craft.
From a 45-minute excursion to a full-day tour, at Wētā, you can immerse yourself in the world of movie-making.
Get up close to props and models used in the Lord of the Rings films, watch visual effects artists at work or visit one of the real, miniature television shooting stages used in Thunderbirds are Go.
You’ll be surprised by how much of Wētā Workshop’s magic comes from re-purposing everyday items to create crafty genius.
At Wētā’s Miramar workshops, you can also have a DIY experience, creating your own chainmaille, makeup effects, or learning the basics of sculpting.
