Fantasy Unleashed - Creative Workshop - 60 mins
Turn your fantasy world, into reality.
Creating a physical miniature landscape that feels like a real environment with believable elements, isn't as hard as you think. You need to be creative, yes, but our Unleashed crew will help you extract your inner artist and teach you the skills you need to create your imaginary world.
You’ll be guided through a Workshop brief based on our original fantasy movie, the Age of the Ever-Clan, featured in the Wētā Workshop Unleashed experience. Your crew member will take you through the brief, examine the movie scene to understand the miniature required, and then dive right into the techniques needed to bring that scene to life.
Feel what it's like to be a movie artist!
Everything you need to create your fantasy world will be provided, along with personal instruction so you can craft a truly believable environment. Workshop sizes are limited so that everyone can get the personalised attention they need to have fun and create something amazing.
Certificate of Creativity!
You’ll receive a Certificate of Creativity upon completion of the workshop.
