TIG welding is generally recognized as the welding technique of choice for artisans and more exotic materials including aluminum and stainless steel. TIG welding is more difficult to learn than MIG welding.  TIG requires greater hand/eye coordination. TIG welding is a lower amperage precision arc welding process particularly useful in artwork and metal sculpture.

This is hands-on introduction to TIG welding.  Class size is 4 people facilitating one-on-one learning and direct mentoring. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped TIG welding station.

The objective of the TIG series is for you to be able to comfortably weld using the TIG process.


  • The class includes shop safety and hazard awareness and proper use of Personal Protection Equipment. There is a brief introduction to welding theory and proper preparation of materials. Each student will go through the set up process for TIG welding on a Miller 215 welder. 
  • There will be approximately two hours of hands-on instruction in making a weld, different types of welds, and torch and filler rod manipulation. 
  • Additional materials fee of $10 for steel coupons, gas, tungsten, consumables, and filler rod is included in the price of class.
