Give your imagination a boost these school holidays and bring a world to life

12-18 years


Since the 60’s filmmakers and artists alike have been using toilet rolls, vacuum hoses, and bottle tops to add a unique flair to their creations. Get ready to design an incredible creature and then watch it come to life using everyday items that we take for granted. Our tamariki will be able to explore the world of creature design and learn just how easy it is to recycle!

No experience or tools necessary. Just bring yourself and your imagination!

What To Expect

Weta Workshop Small Group Tour: Learn about props, costumes and creatures created for your favourite films, at our special tour space on Park Road, Miramar.

Craft a Creature: Spend some time with our events technicians and learn how to design and construct your own amazing critter. Gain hands-on tips and techniques from our crew and create your own fantastical character from our unusual collection of bits and bobs. Have some small clean recycling you want to use? Bring it along!

Take your creation home to finish and display!
