MOVIE BLOOD & CHAINMAILLE WORKSHOP
Weta Workshop is opening its doors to give you the chance to make movie magic with our crew! Learn to mix buckets of fake movie blood and then create unique Weta Workshop chainmaille - as worn by the armies of The Lord of the Rings! Spots are strictly limited.
Take your Weta Studio Tours experience to the next level with two interactive workshops led by Weta Workshop crew! Learn in an intimate setting at our off-premises group experience space.
"It’s… as if it were a friend teaching you.”
MIXING MOVIE BLOOD
Our crew have been slipping and sliding on faux blood and loose limbs since the days of Peter Jackson’s Braindead (1992). Learn how we make the consistency of blood oh-so-oozy for film and TV.
Traditional chainmaille armour, made from thousands of rings of steel linked together, makes for a hard and HEAVY day’s work on a film set. Luckily, during The Lord of the Rings, we developed a light-weight alternative to adorn the armies of Middle-earth! Witness the evolution and create your own small piece of Weta Workshop chainmaille to take away.
Children 6 – 12 Years: $22 (recommended for 10 yrs+ all children must be accompanied by an adult)
Offered daily at 9AM and 4PM (subject to availability)
