Norela Haviari is a multidisciplinary artist and self-taught graphic designer. She was immediately drawn to the precision nature of the laser cutter and has been involved as an instructor in several educational programs at Technocopia over the past 2 years. She enjoys bridging the gap between non-maker and maker by making learning accessible and relying on working smarter not harder, whenever possible. When she’s not working on commissions or teaching, Norela can be found fiddling around with new ideas, generally making a mess, or cooking up a storm.
