Sculpting characters, creatures, and environments is at the core of what Wētā Workshop has achieved over the past three decades. Over the years, we've used all sorts of materials to create cool stuff for Directors and studios across the world. At our 'Intro to Sculpting' workshop, you'll be able to create your own movie magic right here in Wellington.


The sculpting room is where many of our creations come to life for the first time. Roll up your sleeves for an introduction to the magic of sculpture and begin to create a fantastical 3D character. No experience or tools are necessary. Just bring yourself and your enthusiasm.
