Learn TIG welding, an arc welding process that uses non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld.  You will learn metal and joint preparation, use of filler rod andTIG specific welding skills. TIG welding produces more precise, cleaner welds resulting in less cleanup of your weld, and is useful when working with panels, sheet metal and lighter materials.  You will practice your new skills under supervision to create a piece of wall or yard art from sheet and scrap metal. 

Wear long sleeve shirt, long pants and closed toe shoes.
