Shockwave will not be available as and EAC project course after September 30, 2018.

Shockwave is a beginner canvas work piece designed to showcase interesting techniques such as bargello, a layered board, crescent petal flower clusters, and a variety of canvas work stitches. Each corner is different so a lot of stitches are covered.

The stitches for this piece fall into the five main categories of straight, diagonal, cross, tied and looped, and decorative.

You will pick a colour of Caron Watercolours, and then pull colours from this thread to build your colour palette using #5 Perle Cotton. Metallics are used as an accent. Get all of the details for Shockwave on the EAC website.
