Have you ever wondered what it would be like to design a gruesome wound, inflicted by a terrifying monster, and use prosthetic effects to apply it to your arm? At our 'Intro into special effects' creative workshop, our Wētā Workshop Unleashed crew. Will teach the basic tricks of the trade to deliver realistic prosthetic effects that will make your friends and family cringe in terror, and giggle with horrified delight. The thrill of hands-on creative workshops is experiencing what it’s like to be a practical effects artist working on the movies, creating ghastly effects for a variety of scenes. You’ll receive a Certificate of Creativity upon completion of the workshop along with a copy of the Workshop’s own recipe for fake blood that we use.
