Event Details


TIG is the new MIG. The coolest thing about TIG welding is that TIG allows you to see exactly what is going on as the weld is executed, up close and personal, without being showered in splatter. Plus you don't have to wear those bulky gloves.


This 3-hour introductory class will teach you the very basics of TIG welding. Artstar, professional welder and the 2nd biggest muscles at Madagascar Institute, Jim Tessen will familiarize you with TIG welding and give you the tips so that you can come back to the shop and practice on your own.


You will learn a little of the theory and tech behind it, then move on to how the machine works, how to weld, several types of joins, then you'll finish up by throwing your practice piece into the street and if it stays together: Success! It's all we can hope for...


This is a filthy, working shop. You will get dirty. Wear long sleeves, jeans and closed toed shoes. We have welding gloves you can borrow but it's nice to have your own shop gloves.



Please dress for the weather (if it's cold outside, it's cold inside!)  The class is $50 with a $10 materials fee.
