Meghan Throckmorton speaks on the importance of childhood in creativity.
Meghan Throckmorton is a crafter and community organizer who left a career in consumer fireworks that had her hopping across the Pacific every month to open a boutique on Santa Fe when her daughter was born. Her shop, Rakun, carries all locally handmade items, and is often bustling with folks from the craft community and their children making cute and happy things.
Meghan is VP of Denver Handmade Alliance, founder of Denver Independent Boutiques, and she is on the Create Denver Advisory Committee because she wants to help build opportunities for people to do what they love. She was recently interviewed about her sweet and simple world for Westword’s 100 Colorado Creatives, and Rakun is nominated for CBCA’s Create Award for her honest, homey impact on the craft community. Here she speaks about childhood and how she finally found a way to play what she loves every day.
