Events & Experiences | Creative Workshops

Our motto is “be creative and make cool stuff.” We love to share our creativity with others – and what better way to do that, than to have our guests roll up their sleeves?

Get hands-on and learn the practical magic of film effects, guided by the Wētā Workshop crew. Choose one or combine multiple workshops to craft your unforgettable creative event.
