The Nordic House & a wander around Tòrshavn

Day 8 of my travels with The Clipperton Project around the Faroe Islands.

Today we were still in Tòrshavn and my day was a bit annoying.

I woke up in a bad mood for no apparent reason, and it got worse as I messed up most of morning wandering to and from laundry services trying to acquire clean clothes!! A complete waste of a morning… but I made up for it.

I cheered myself up by wandering over to Norðurlandahúsið í Føroyum or The Nordic House… after I had finally washed my clothes!!!

The Nordic House was basically a culture venue, built using traditional Nordic design with a modern spin. It was beautiful. And at the moment housed a really interesting art exhibition.

The Summer Exhibition NÚ/NOW 3 June – 21 August
The Summer Exhibition 2016 lets young Faroese artists born after 1980 take centre stage. We showcase works by 26 young talented artists, each with their own approach to visual arts.

I then wandered around the city for a little bit, doing a bit of shopping, and just seeing what I could see :)

No. I did not draw this. Just was highly amused as I walked past!

I then settled into this beach to draw and gather up materials to make jewellery with.

A bad start to my day turned beautiful with art and the sea shore.

More to come soon…
