WSU: Research That Informs Mens Shed-Based Practices

This a list of research publications that provide evidence to support the wellbeing of men in shed-based contexts.

Australian Men's Sheds Association


This document lists research, mostly from Australia, which provides the most recent evidence and insights as to why and how ‘men’s shed’ or workshop-based practice can enhance men’s lives and wellbeing in some community settings.

It is important to acknowledge the generous cooperation of shed participants as informants in this research, as well as the pioneering and exploratory work in this field by many individuals and organizations in community shed settings long before this research was undertaken.

If you know of other, relevant research you think should be added to update this Draft list, please contact:
