Weta Workshop and Creativity
127 Park Road Miramar
6pm Drinks - Start at 630pm.

Without Creativity, Where Would We Be?

In Wellington, we are so fortunate to have Weta Workshop in our own backyard. The Academy Award-winning conceptual design and manufacturing facility employs a stack of fabulous female talent, each day creating incredible things that set our imaginations alight.

Come along to this workshop to hear from three women of Weta Workshop who are leaders in their creative disciplines. Flo Foxworthy (costume technician and pattern maker), Rebekah Tisch (concept designer and art director), and Jane Wenley (sculptor) work across a broad range of film and television projects, exhibitions and displays, theatrical productions, and collectibles. Their film credits include Ghost in the Shell, The Great Wall, The Hobbit motion picture trilogy, Avatar, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Thunderbirds Are Go, and many more.

Alongside images of their work, Flo, Rebekah and Jane will share their experiences working in the creative industries, how they balance personal creative projects with their Workshop commitments, and their artistic process.
