Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding is generally recognized as the welding technique of choice for artisans working with more exotic materials including aluminum and stainless steel.
TIG welding is more difficult to learn than Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding since it requires greater hand/eye coordination and the simultaneous use of both hands and a foot (controlling the amperage pedal.) TIG welding is a precision process that's particularly useful in high-grade artwork and metal sculpture. The class includes shop safety, hazard awareness, and the proper use of personal protection equipment.
- Class is limited to four people to facilitate one-on-one learning and direct mentoring.
- Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped TIG welding station.
