What you can expect

For over 20 years, Wētā Workshop has crafted beautiful leather work for the big screen. Having kitted out countless armies with chainmaille and leather-adorned costumes, the Workshop has brought life to many films, such as The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, and more. Our hands-on workshop is your chance to create your movie magic with our crew. Learn techniques used by our costume department and refine, design, and dye your very own leather keepsake! It’s an intro to leather work, and you’ll be guided through a process of creativity by our team.
