Tuesday 6 February: Monthly Meeting

Artists Charlotte Burgmans and Sam Schultz talk about their work as abstract artists. Both these women are IWC members and have separate, successful careers as fine artists. Although they both practice in abstract style, their work and working processes are very different. This will be a fun and fascinating presentation!

Monthly Meetings

IWC Amsterdam meetings take place, as a rule, on the first Tuesday of the month, but occasionally they are held the following week. They occur each month from September to May. We meet at 10:00 in the historic Koninklijke Industrieele Groote Club on Dam Square.

We start with tea or coffee and chat before the meeting begins. There are assigned members looking out for new members at every meeting, so if you are new, they will welcome you and introduce you to other friendly women in the club. At 10:30 we assemble in the Groote Zaal to listen to our guest speaker. After the meeting, from 12:00 to 12:30, the IWC offers you a glass of wine or a soft drink. Members then often meet in small groups and head to lunch in the “Rienstra’s Eetzaal” Restaurant of the Koninklijke Industrieele Groote Club, or to one of the many restaurants nearby.

Dress code: Smart casual: the KIGC does not permit trainers of any style.

Please note: There is a €5 fee for all guests wishing to attend a meeting.

Directions: from Centraal Station, walk down Damrak to Dam Square. The Koninklijke Industrieele Groote Club is opposite de Bijenkorf and to the left of the Gassan diamond shop.
