wires.co.uk should be able to supply the wire, and I have bought some from Jewellery supply places in the US before.
As for sheet, I find electrical engineering places stock it, ages since I bought any though. Maybe have a google, or see if anyone else has a good source.

Boo might have the answer, she uses a lot of copper I think.

This is where I've bought sheet in the past.
eBay.co.uk Shop: Search results for Ringwood Precision Engineering. (http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/Ringwood-Precision-Engineering__W0QQ_armrsZ1QQ_fsubZ688857012)
Can't really help with heavier gauges or sheet, as much of the copper I'm using at the moment was obtained,found etc.
For finer gauges of wire, many general jewellery supply places sell it and they're all much the same price - around £1.75 a reel - quantity depends on gauge - 0.6mm = 10m, 1mm = 4m etc:
The Bead Shop - International Mail Order Beads, Nottingham. Index Page. (http://www.mailorder-beads.co.uk/index.html)
Grove Beads UK, Swarovski Crystal Beads , Swarovski beads wholesale, Crystal Pearls, Gemstones, Jewellery making supplies. (http://www.grovebeads.co.uk/index1.html)
Many places do copper coloured craft wire, which is no good if you want to solder, melt, hammer etc.
I'll dig some more through my bookmarks.

I also get my copper wire from wires.co.uk - specialist in craft wire, knitted craft wire, silver wire, enamelled copper, resistance wires, stainless steel, plated wires and many more! (http://www.wires.co.uk)
I just remembered that I've bought heavier gauges of copper and aluminium on eBay from a seller called Endless Green:
eBay UK Shop - Endless Green: Woodworking, Wax, Drill Bits (http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/Endless-Green__W0QQ_armrsZ1)
I did try and post another link, but was told that a mod had to approve it first, so I don't know if that was because it was an eBay shop - it's a seller called Endless Green.
