“We are thrilled to team up once again with our friends at Wellington International Airport and open this fantastical luggage conveyor belt for the enjoyment of arriving passengers to our wonderful city. It’s covered in the sorts of quirky creatures and characters we enjoy making at Workshop every day. We airfreight these sorts of things all over the world on a fairly regular basis so this conveyer belt is not too far from the realms of the imagination.”
We’ve been blown away by the response from people visiting Wellington International Airport who have seen our large-scale installations like Smaug, Gollum and Gandalf riding a great eagle. We know this installation is going to strike a chord with international visitors because, just down the road in Miramar, an incredible 150+ thousand people visit the Wētā Cave every year. It’s wonderful to be able to give visitors a taste of what they’ll discover in Wellington within minutes of getting off the plane.
