TIG Welding 101
January 10, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$760.00
Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that produces the weld with a non-consumable tungsten electrode. TIG welding is most suitable for thin sheet material, high quality, or precision welding. It’s a more advanced process to learn in comparison to MIG welding, requiring good hand-eye (and foot) coordination. Join us in our small, 2-person class and make some rainbows!
Duration: 3 hours – you must arrive 15 minutes before the start time to participate. The class will start as scheduled, please be respectful to the instructor and other participants by arriving on time.

Corey Gerard – Welding Instructor at Maker Cube
Corey’s interest in fabrication began in 2012 when he started working for a water jet company. After a few years of building a strong skill set in metallurgy, precision measures and water jet cutting, Corey began a new career path working for foundation mechanical. At his new career he has expanded his welding skills while learning how to build brewery equipment and gained experience in laser cutting, graphic design and brewing beer!
In his space time when he’s not tinkering at Maker Cube, Corey enjoys; rock climbing in the summer, snow boarding in the winter, playing guitar and drinking an ice cold beer.
