MOVIE BLOOD & CHAINMAILLE WORKSHOP

Weta Workshop is opening its doors to give you the chance to make movie magic with our crew! Step into our Kitchen of Horror and learn to mix buckets of fake movie blood. 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! Gain exclusive access to our off-premises group experience space and learn in an inspiring setting.

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, while you whip up a batch to bring home.

CRAFTING CHAINMAILLE

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 custom piece of Weta Workshop chainmaille to take away.
