Highlights

  • Experience life as a "Weta" for a day
  • Interactive chainmaille making lesson
  • Learn how props, weapons, costumes and creatures are designed and manufactured

This is your chance to experience life as a “Weta” for the day! Join the Weta Workshop crew on a Saturday afternoon to explore the dedicated tour space, then make movie magic with a hands on chainmaille lesson, just like you see in Lord of the Rings.

What's Included?

  • 45 minute guided tour of the Weta Workshop Experience Space
  • Interactive workshop led by Weta Workshop Crew
  • Small gift from Weta Workshop to take home

This is your change to experience life as a “Weta” as you join the crew and make movie magic in an interactive chainmaille making lesson.

You’ll be able to explore the Weta Workshop on a fully guided tour through their Experience Space (their dedicated off-premises group tour space) and learn how props, weapons, costumes and even creatures are designed and manufactured to movies such as The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, The Chronicles of Narnia and more!

You’ll then have the chance to make chainmaille as seen in the Lord of the Rings movies. Chainmaille (also known as chainmail, or simply maille) is typically armor or jewelry made by connecting metal rings to one another. The Weta experts will be on hand at all times to show you their tricks of the trade.

Receive a small gift from Weta Workshop to take home with you also.

Please note: Two hands-on workshops are hosted by Weta Crew every Saturday. On the day, guests can choose to craft chainmaille or mix fake movie blood depending on their preference.
