Expand your mind. Explore your creativity. Express yourself.
Hi, I'm Scott Xavi and I am an artist and environmental scientist. My passion is (re-) connecting people with the nature we are all part of. I believe that art can play an important role within this process and I love helping people to find their creativity and enhance their emotional connection to the world around them.
As we (re)discover our creativity, we rewild our minds and grow aware of the deep connection between us and our wild surroundings.
Let me take you on a journey of mindful discovery!
We will head out into nature. As we walk, I will talk about the ecosystem we are visiting, its inhabitants and functions, its hidden secrets and overt wonders. Then we will find a place to settle down and I will take the group through some guided contemplation and present an easy to follow outline to get everyone writing poetry based on their sensory and emotional experiences.
Group size is limited to a maximum of 8 people to ensure a personal and intimate setting.
The workshop is suitable for children ages 12+, youths and adults.
The length and difficulty of the walk can be adjusted according to the participants abilities and wishes.
No prior experience in writing poetry is required!
“Scott led an informative and inspiring workshop, giving us the opportunity to experience nature first hand infused with his knowledge and expert guidance. Really enjoyed it and got lots from it. Loved his style - easy, sensitive and informative."
"I found Scott's workshop very inspiring. The simple concept helped me connect with the surrounding nature in new ways and appreciate the world through all my sense. Scott's light-touch facilitation was backed up by a wealth of experience and knowledge. He brought together all our contributions in a powerful way, which created a nice bond for the group."
“I hadn't written a poem in 15 years! This workshop really touched something in me and your empathy enabled me to trust my poetic voice again. Thank you!”
Please get in touch to book a session. Minimum group size is 3. The price is £15 / person. If you are an organisation wanting to offer the workshop to its members, you can book me for £75.
The workshop takes around 90-120 minutes.
