CHRISTMAS shoppers had a chance to buy something a little out of the ordinary this year.
Arts students from the University of Plymouth showed off their talents at a Handmade House exhibition in Drake's Circus.
Limited-edition items created by students included original artwork, prints, posters, T-shirts and many other two and three-dimensional creations
The exhibition last week was part of the university's Enterprise Week and Global Entrepreneurship Week activities, and gave shoppers the chance to snap up alternatives to the mass-produced products in most high street stores.
Money raised from the sale of the students' work will help to fund their exhibition at two of Britain's most prestigious showcases of new design talent, both in London.
Free Range is the largest graduate creative showcase in Europe, and New Designers is the place for new design students to show their work to leading consultants, agencies and industry contacts.
