His creative genius and advanced skills extend to the farthest boundaries of his artistic field. Engaging over four decades of journeyman study and application, Mr. Cochran is a skilled tanner and has the knowledge to classify, harvest and process natural materials to make woven textiles, create cloth and thread, produce pigments and dyes, and fashion buttons, ornaments and accessories.
