This course will provide students with the fundamental skills of Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. TIG welding is a precise, clean process that allows the user to work with a greater variety of materials including mild steel, stainless steel, bronze, and aluminum. (We will be working in mild steel, but if students should desire to learn about TIG welding other metals in particular, this can be arranged after a safety consultation.) The first day of class will focus on getting familiar with TIG welding and working with mild steel to understand the nuances of the process. On day two, students will build upon their skills by expanding the materials catalog and introducing metal cutting processes. No previous experience necessary—this is a great opportunity to explore TIG welding for the first time. All materials and tools will be provided; students will leave the workshop with a firm understanding of TIG welding and a small personal project.
