Quilos and the Windmill are a pair of artist-explorers who, travelling light, use whatever they find on their journeys as starting-points for structures, images, words, sounds and performances.

The idea for these works in this exhibition began during a residency at Ox Bow School of Art in Michigan.

The making process is truely collaborative as each work is passed back and forth betwen the two artists until it comes to rest.

My name is Tony and I have the most extraordinary friend…Pablo Picasso!

Come and play down on the farm with Tony and Picasso. We’ll have loads of fun, make crazy pictures and we’ll tell the true story of how a young boy became friends with one of the greatest artists who ever lived.

This is a 'messy' theatre show with lots of interactive fun to engage young children.

The show is based on a Thames Hudson publication of the same name, and is touring around the country - see the growing gallery of 'Picasso' pictures from Untied Artists.

1.    Hidden Places: Celebrate the beauty and mystery of secret natural places.

2.    Organic Forms:  Selecting from a primary basis such as plants, flowers, seed heads, shells, pebbles or rocks.

3.    Miniature Plant Pot Garden.
