Museum of the Zaborska Land in Wiele

Its principal asset is the legacy of Leonard Brzezinski, a teacher, specializing in biology and geography, who since 1954 is retired. Since then he began collecting monuments of culture and folk art, resulting in a collection of 365 exhibits, the vast majority coming from the southern Kashuby. While still a teacher, Brzezinski began to embroider, which became his passion. He created his ‘own’ school of Kashubian embroidery, outstanding in precision of workmanship and specific colors. He also made different items from the bovine horn, including a very impressive snuffs.

The materials from which products are made are primarily pine and limewood, as well as beech, poplar, alder cherry. Some of the cooper’s tools are made of elm and maple, pine roots braided, other items of iron and stone. In this wealth of Kashubian material culture there are plenty of interesting things such as the fishing rope linden bast (20th century – Wdzydze Tucholskie), wood hosepipe (19th century – Knieja), iron from a solid block of iron (beginning of 19th century), a tool for making clogs and spoons (19th century) made by a blacksmith, and instruments used by him to remove teeth (19th century), two-element line crayfish (19th century), and many others. Leonard Brzezinski was a caring guardian of his collection. He was happy to make them available to tourists and school children. But the main addressee of his work were all residents Wiele.
