TIG Welding 4 Hour Taster
This 4 hour workshop offers participants a safety-first oriented introduction to TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas, or GTAW - Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) in combination with some power tool use. We explore developing an intuition for navigating optimal machine settings. We encourage attention to developing good welding techniques while reviewing basic terminology and fundamental welding principles. Participants are encouraged to bring scrap steel and/or aluminum to use for a simple artistic project to take home. Materials and safety gear will also be provided.
Participants must wear natural fiber clothing (cotton or wool), and closed toed shoes (leather/boots preferred). Long hair should be tied back and jewelry removed. This is 'hands on' class. Expect to get dirty and have some fun while doing so! Please wear pants and bring a long sleeve shirt. If you wear reading glass bring those, too.
If you have a question related to the class you can email the instructor at [masked]
