A great way to get immersed in the world of face and bodypaint and learn from New Zealands best facepainters.

The venue has beautiful overnight accommodation for those who wish to stay overnight, this will include breakfast. Which includes twin share rooms.

Our reviews have been amazing every time and FABACONZ has become one of the yearly highlights for many face and body painters’.
