Alumni graduated Paul Cummins studied BA (Hons) Craft. His latest work was world renown and won him an MBE.
Paul was chosen as the country's lead project to mark the centenary anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The finished installation at the Tower of London was called Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.
Paul Cummins says, ‘I chose BA (Hons) Crafts at the University of Derby as it was the best in the country at the time. It was very practical and I could understand how I could gain real employment opportunities from it. I really enjoyed it – it was well balanced and fun too!’
