Seeds Center is, in essence, a multi-experience and multi-inter-generational learning hub for all to join. Our free "stepping stone" programs, which began in 2017, experiment and explore inclusive, connected, positive, and possible learning processes and viable options for the open public.

Seeds Center is currently rooted in the physical location of Unity Community Center of Unity Lutheran Church, and open and affirming institution, located in one of the most socioeconomically diverse areas in Chicago close to the micro-areas of the Asian community on Argyle in Uptown, the bustling Andersonville, the Bryn Mawr Historic District.

While conventional learning in the US has been more segregated in terms of age and opportunity, less experience-based/hands-on, and less integrated across disciplines (particularly in the creative and “practical” realms), Seeds Center hopes to challenge such notions by creating change from the bottom up.

The theory is based on Seeds Center founder, Charlotte Lin’s philosophy that learning is truly the key to thriving and if we instill the best ways to learn and plant them into the community, we can start to create unimaginable positive changes for our future.

Notes:
Providing dietary and allergy information applicable to any classes. Wearing appropriate clothing for the activity such as no open toe shoes for cooking and clothes you wouldn't find getting a little dirty for certain art classes.

100% of any tips made to your instructor go straight to him/her and are completely optional. Class sizes are small so they are extra fun and attentive

Attended: Left and Right Handed Beginner's Calligraphy


The class was small (three people), so the instructor could demonstrate technique in an up-close-and-personal manner, providing individual attention to each of us. The workspace was well lighted. There was plenty of room at the table. Above all, the instructor was excellent. She is talented both as a calligrapher and as a teacher.

I learned so much from Jamilla. I never intended to learn wire wrapping, but now I am hooked. I was able to make some beautiful pieces. When I wear the pendant I made I get so many compliments. Thank you for a great class Jamilla Vanilla!
