American Women's Club of Zurich

Monthly Extras

Aside from the regularly scheduled events, the club often has extra, special events. Read on to find out about any planned monthly extras.

FIZ Annual Toiletry Drive - 2020

Patti and Laurel collect for PHASEFIZ is a Swiss organization staffed by volunteers who advocate for and support migrant women and women who are victims of trafficking. Every year the AWCZ collects toiletries to donate to FIZ for these women in need.

Please look in your home for shampoos, soaps and other toiletry items (travel size and hotel shampoos are perfect) that could be of use to FIZ. There will be a drop box marked FIZ TOILETRY DRIVE at the Clubhouse from October through early December to collect the items.

Thank you in advance for your generous contributions!

WW: Intuitive Painting

Date: Friday, December 4
Time: 14.00 - 16:00
Presenter: Kim Flüeler  http://www.studiosol.ch

The holidays are approaching and it’s time to get creative. Come spend a few relaxing hours at Studio Sol to get into the holiday spirit. You will “make and take” what you paint. The studio is set up with a palette table of eighteen water-based gouache colors. A paper is pinned up to the wall and each person will paint standing up. Chairs are available if needed.​

My name is Kim Flüeler and I am the art facilitator of Studio Sol. In September 2015 I went to Paris to attend the Painting Play seminar taught by Arno Stern. I hold a BFA in Graphic Design from the Kansas City Art Institute. I look forward to welcoming you to Studio Sol soon. studiosol.ch

Add on to your relaxing day with a Traditional Hawaiian Lomilomi massage. This will take place in the same building as Studio Sol before or after the “make and take” activity. Lomilomi activates muscle tissue connections, stretches ligaments and tendons, promotes joint mobility, stimulates nerves and organs, and prevents inflammation. For body, mind, and soul Lomilomi is like a short vacation in Hawaii. Marcel, Kim’s husband, is a certified Lomilomi masseur and member of the Swiss Association of Professional Masseurs (SVBM). 90 minutes for CHF 130.-- or 120 minutes for CHF 160.--. For more information check out the website at wylomi.ch or call 076 500 80 67 to schedule your appointment.

Marcel will be donating 20CHF to the club from the proceeds of the massage.

Who can attend: Adults
Workshop Fee: Members CHF 20, Non-members CHF 30
Additional Materials Fee: CHF 10 (Please pay, in cash, at the workshop)
Cancellation Deadline: November 30

What to wear: comfortable clothes and shoes

NOTE: * This workshop is off-site, please see the address below. Limited to the first 4 registered. Studio Sol is NOT wheelchair accessible.

AWCZ Cancellation and No Show Policy: For those cost-based Events and Activities, the participant/s will be billed for the Event/Activity unless she/he has cancelled before the cancellation deadline in writing or per e-mail. For free Events and Activities, as we need an accurate headcount for the caterers, the cancellation deadline should be honored. Thank you for your understanding.
