It's small companies doing really cool things like this one that make us love our middle-of-the-country-city SO much. We first fell in love with Utilitarian Workshop's work when we sat down at their beautifully-crafted handmade wood tables at Port Fonda, a favorite KC restaurant. We quickly contacted them for some custom work for our very own home!
Utilitarian Workshop is just coming to the end of their Kickstarter campaign (Dec. 12th) in order to raise funds to open a community-driven retail space at 1659 Summit in Kansas City. "Our goal is to provide a locally driven, collaborative boutique based around hand made goods". If you haven't heard of Kickstarter, it's a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.
Help Utilitarian Workshop finance their dream on Kickstarter right here!! Anything you can donate would help them get to their goal! If you're local, join the Happy Hour fundraiser at Port Fonda! (all details on the kickstarter page)
